Twilight of harvest

A farmer guides his combine towards home under a dramatic sunset filled sky. This year’s harvest is in its twilight. When finished, Iowa farmers will have harvested nearly 415 million bushels of soybeans and 2.2 billion bushels of corn despite a growing season that included spring floods and a fall drought. Many attribute the tremendous bounty to better farming methods and advances in biology that make crops more resilient.
